MSSP News Alert: Tuesday 04 April 2017
Each morning MSSP Alert offers readers a quick lineup of news, analysis and chatter from across the MSSP (managed security services provider) ecosystem.
Here’s the lineup for Tuesday, April 4, 2017:
4. Security Compliance: OneNeck IT Solutions, a top MSP, has completed the PCI DSS version 3.2 “Level 1” service provider validation. The move positions OneNeck to attract event more compliance-related business.
3. Security Partner Program: Hexadite, which develops an agentless intelligent security automation platform, has launched a Security Automation Channel Program. VP Jessica Couto is driving the effort. She’s a veteran of LANDesk, Kaspersky Lab, Bit9/Carbon Black and Carbonite.
2. Identity and Access Management: One Identity, part of the Quest Software spin-off from Dell, had nearly a quarter billion dollars in 2016 bookings, the company says. Moreover, those bookings were up 17-percent in 2016 vs. 2015. It’s the 13th consecutive year for profitability, and partner-driven revenues rose 29 percent in 2016, One Identity says. Next up: Watch for more SaaS- and subscription based services from the IAM company, according to our meetings at the recent RSA Conference 2017.
1. Countdown to Launch: Yup. We wrote this blog on Tuesday, April 4 — quite a bit before MSSP Alert’s anticipated launch day in mid-2017.
